Tl-181 "North Carolina by Kurarun Tl-181 "North Carolina by Kurarun
I spent four or more hours making this, so you'd better like it!

***

"In 1882 the British Empire was still the dominant power in the Carolinas. They held the vast majority of North Carolina as the Empire of the West Indies, a colonial monarchy with moderate levels of self-rule. The EWI was far more developed than other nations in the region. Their only true rival on the continent was the United Empire of Carolina, a former Imperial Spanish colony with a federal monarchy based on that of Germany, but even the UEC had barely two thirds of the EWI's economic and productive capacity, and it was still far behind in terms of population, military and international influence. It would not be until 1927 that Britain's dominance in North Carolina would be threatened when a more developed and advanced UEC would join the Great War against the Entente Pact." - Contemporary History and Politics by Willem Baantjer.

Thanks!

This map was made a couple of years ago and I've since given up on the timeline, but I don't think it's too much of a stretch to have the term "West Indies" refer to the entirety of the Americas, rather than just the Caribbean.

At least Illinois is a part of the powerful British Empire. Great work here

But it doesn't say months; it says hours....

It looks nice, but to be honest, it really doesn't look like something that could require 4 months of work. Unless, of course, most of the time was spent researching the different names for the geography.

4 months? Did you mean to say hours?

Yeah, a great deal of the time spent on this map was researching flags and place names.

I swear I read months there, that's why I was surprised.
4 hours doesn't sound like a lot to spend on one map ;)
